Guest Speaker: Sean Landsman, Instructor, Institute of Environmental and Interdisciplinary Science

When we think of migratory fish, most conjure up images of bright red sockeye salmon darting past grizzly bears in the Pacific Northwest. And while sockeye salmon, and indeed all Pacific salmon, provide critical nutrient pulses to North American freshwater ecosystems, many other species provide similar “services,” including inland migratory species and fishes on the East Coast. Join Dr. Landsman as he takes viewers on a stunning underwater visual journey of some of North America’s most important migratory fishes. Viewers will learn about the natural history of these incredible species as well as results of recent research that have revealed new connections within stream food webs. Ensuring we maintain populations of these species will have direct benefits for the creatures that call our rivers and streams, including the land around them, home.
